  • Backwards - its title referring to the wisdom that life is lived forward but understood backward - has no forward propulsion. show more

  • Director Ben Hickernell soft-pedals the material into a blandly feel-good dramedy. As Abigail's spirited young trainees, Alexandra Metz and Meredith Apfelbaum give Backwards their all, but can't row their way clear of its clichés. show more
